The boychild and I go to movies all the time but perhaps the movie I’m most excited to see this year is Maleficent! From the moment I found out it starred Angelina Jolie and the first movie poster was released, I could hardly wait for its release. Based on Angelina Jolie’s makeup alone, I can tell the imagery is going to be everything I imagined and more. I remember reading an interview Angelina Jolie did where she talked about how her own kids didn’t recognize her in her costume.
We all know the tale of Maleficent from the movie Sleeping Beauty but we don’t know her story! Well now it’s time for her to shine and I can’t wait!
“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
Maleficent hits theaters May 30, 2014. honestly, I don’t know who’s more excited me or the boychild but I do know where I will be the day it’s released! If you are excited like I am, I suggest you follow @Maleficent on Twitter as she will soon be dropping a few surprises.
